Chapter 7: A World Without Injuries

Once seated in the meeting room, a clerk handed out the contract text to everyone before leaving.

The main content of the contract was about the acquisition of Hattori Plastic Processing Factory.

Uesugi Kiyoshi had done research beforehand and found out that Erlang Hattori owned all the factory's properties. So, there were only three of them in the meeting room.

While casually flipping through the contract, Uesugi Kiyoshi sat across from Erlang Hattori, who was smiling without any dignity as the selling party.

"Mr. Uesugi, these are the previously agreed-upon details. Please go through them, and if everything is fine…"

"This part is not correct."

"Really?" Erlang Hattori looked at the spot pointed out by Uesugi Kiyoshi, adjusted his glasses, looking surprised. ‘Both parties agree that the transfer price of Hattori Plastic Processing Factory's equity and all assets is ten billion three hundred million yen…’ No problem, right?

"The amount is wrong!" Uesugi Kiyoshi picked up a pen, crossed out a number on the contract, and then wrote a fancy "8" next to it, "8 billion yen, pay 5 billion upfront, and the remaining 3 billion in three monthly installments."

Erlang Hattori's gaze shifted between Uesugi Kiyoshi and the contract, his face gradually turning red, then pale, until it was almost white.

"B-but we had agreed on a different amount before…"

"You said it yourself, that was before!"

Uesugi Kiyoshi slammed the table suddenly, standing up, startling Nakasone Kazuko who was daydreaming nearby.

"We had agreed to a week ago, but why did you only reach out now?"

"That's because, because…"

"Because there were too many orders for protective suit fabrics and you couldn't bear to part with them, right?"

Uesugi Kiyoshi walked up to the sweaty Erlang Hattori with a commanding tone, "Orders have been canceled due to violating Yumura Society's patents, and then you thought of me, right?"

"Have your warehouse already been filled with raw materials? How will you handle it?"

"Considering the current season, material prices are likely not low. You already have poor management skills, so where did you get the money to purchase the goods from?"

"Bank loan?"

"No, your factory is poorly managed; the bank won't lend you any money!"

"Is it a loan shark then?!"

With each word, Erlang Hattori stooped lower, eventually dropping to his knees, "I'm truly sorry, please forgive me!"

Uesugi Kiyoshi stared at the middle-aged man, staying silent until he almost collapsed, before extending a hand.

"If I don't forgive, I wouldn't have come."

He helped Erlang Hattori up and spoke kindly, "Now, besides the Yumura Society, who else would take over your factory? Who dares take over your factory?"

"Yes, yes…" Erlang Hattori's voice choked up, "But eight hundred million yen, it's just… I can't even pay off the debt!"

Uesugi Kiyoshi pondered for a moment, clapped his hands, and made a final decision, "Here's the deal, I will take on all the debts, but I can only offer one billion yen for the transfer fee, no more, how does that sound?"

Under the pressure of loan sharks and the prestigious Yumura Society, Erlang Hattori had to give in and signed his name on the newly printed contract.

In the twilight, he stuffed the box filled with the acquisition money into his protective suit, staggered out of the meeting room, and gradually disappeared into the distance.

Nakasone Kazuko bit her lip, feeling a sense of pity, "Is it a bit too much? But it sounds like he was in the wrong first…"

"Don't dwell on this!" Uesugi Kiyoshi reassured as he organized the contract, "I got the factory, but he also got rid of the debt, it's a win-win!"

Nakasone Kazuko sighed softly and stepped forward to help, "By the way, when did you contact him?"

"Uh, around the time of applying for the patent, I guess."

"He actually believes you?"

Even though Uesugi Kiyoshi looked much more mature after putting on a suit and didn't seem like a 17-year-old high school student, persuading Erlang Hattori with mere words probably wasn't an easy task.

"I gave a deposit of three hundred thousand as a sincere guarantee," explained Uesugi Kiyoshi.

After deducting the production cost of the protective suits and patent application fees, he only had a little over three hundred thousand left.

Although Hattori Plastic Processing Factory only had around twenty employees and was struggling financially with debts, it couldn't be acquired with just a few hundred thousand.

Therefore, Uesugi Kiyoshi clarified that the three hundred thousand was just a deposit. After leaving the money, he left without even taking a receipt, just to leave a lasting impression on Erlang Hattori.

"Let's not dwell on that. We have things to do now - let's get the factory back to production!"

Uesugi Kiyoshi scanned the surroundings and saw a few vague figures in the distant factory buildings, but only a chubby man in a protective suit on the open ground.

When his eyes met Uesugi Kiyoshi's, the chubby man hesitantly walked towards them.

"Excuse me!" The chubby man's forehead was covered in sweat, "I am Anda Tuozhen, former head of the sales planning department."

"Not anymore!"

Uesugi Kiyoshi acted quickly, grabbing the fainting Anda Tuozhen, "I am the new factory manager, Uesugi Kiyoshi, and I appoint you as the deputy factory manager. Please gather everyone here, I have an announcement to make."

Anda Tuozhen took a few deep breaths, a look of wild joy on his face. He sprang up like a spring and happily ran inside.

"What do you want to produce?" Nakasone Kazuko curiously asked. "Hazmat suits?"

Uesugi Kiyoshi laughed heartily, "Of course not, but it's pretty close."

All is prepared, including the east wind.

After promising no layoffs and a ten percent increase in wages, the workers at Uesugi Plastic Processing Factory settled down, erupting with amazing energy. Two days later, they produced the products Uesugi Kiyoshi wanted.

It was a nearly cylindrical polyhedron, about one meter tall, made up of multiple rectangles. The surface was transparent and colorless, with various ornaments hanging inside.

Nakasone Kazuko curiously touched the object and it moved forward a bit when she exerted some force, startling her.

"So light, is this also made of plastic?"

"This is polycarbonate, a type of plastic with high strength, good stability, and no color or taste," explained Anda Tuozhen proudly.

Even though he was not good at marketing products, Anda Tuozhen was skilled at production, perfectly executing Uesugi Kiyoshi's intentions by turning the drawings into products.

Initially planning to just test him out, Uesugi Kiyoshi was now considering entrusting the entire factory work to him.

"Oh…" Nakasone Kazuko nodded in confusion, "So what is this that you are making? A bathtub?"

"Bathtub?!" Anda Tuozhen glanced at Uesugi Kiyoshi and cleared his throat, "Of course not, this is…"

"Why don't you demonstrate it, she will naturally understand," Uesugi Kiyoshi said with a smile.

Another great invention is about to be revealed - of course, I think everyone can guess.
